The Noisy Brain encourage anyone dealing with Mental or Emotional Health Issues (MEHI) to, write them down and share them. The concept is to use the ‘writings’, craft them into lyrics and the lyrics into songs.
Each song and piece of writing shared helps towards raising awareness and educating us all on the various mental and emotional health issues.
It all helps towards ending the harmful stigma around mental and emotional health issues. Come join the growing community.
"My brain is super noisy. I'm from the 80s born to a family of concrete workers. I barely know anything about mental health and have quietly fought battles alone all my life. Only since Covid changed the world have I become more aware of the importance of mental health awareness for mental health. We're all in this world together! So, I loved The Noisy Brain project as soon as I saw the name and the yellow colour. Love that. I had a great time working on my song "Hold Fast" for this collaboration. I learned a lot about myself and the shared struggles of others.” - Malleus Incus Stapes (musician)
"After being set up in a Leicester Square mass bag snatch. I have often thought how I was singled out as the 'patsy' for this particular bag heist. Was I singled out? Did they know I was easy pickings? Did they see me as a vulnerable victim? Maybe. Or maybe I’m just overthinking everything yet again. Yep, probably. Kinda written from the situation unfolding. So, a cross between the thieving bastards and my POV ? " - STU
"Another metaphor for the struggle that is depression. I thought of a walk I went on, in north Wales, where I was headed up a mountain/hill and suddenly the weather took a turn for the worse. I was ill prepared (not coat, jeans) and every step seemed to take an eternity and/or result in pain. This, to me, is what depression is like." - NickK
"This was written about a year after I came out of hospital (mental health unit in Surrey) and I was frustrated as I felt nothing much had changed, and I was on all these meds, which were sapping my soul - killing my personality.
It's pretty raw, but it's the truth." - NickK
"I'm fascinated by the idea of nothing, as there's no such thing - nothing has to be something. Whether it's imagined as darkness, pure white, or transparency, that's still something. So, can nothing really exist?" - NickK
